Anyways, I thought I'd do a tester square for my Nine Patch Eye Spy Quilt since it never fails that I manage to mess stuff up the first time I do something and I'd rather not mess up my new fabric that I got from the Eye Spy Swap!
After reading through the directions again (and again and again...) at Obsessively Stitching I decided to give it a go and this is what I came up with as my tester squares:
|I took the picture after I cut the centre squares - I couldn't wait to see how it looked!|
Just a little turn here and there and it looks like this:
I'm even MORE excited to get going on this quilt now that I have a good idea how to do the placement of the eye spy squares. Maybe I'll get a little more sewing in tonight when the wee ones go to bed and its just Baby C and I hanging out.
Sorry again for the missed days in posting lately - I loved the Blogtoberfest thing but during the last few weeks it seems like life with three little people and a shift working husband has caught up to me and I can't seem to get on top of ANYTHING let alone sewing. I've got a ton of projects buzzing around in my head and not nearly enough time to get them all done (or the laundry, vacuuming, dishes, sweeping, shovelling.......).
Thanks for sticking with me and visiting my blog, hopefully I'll be able to get back into the sewing/blogging groove in the next little bit.
